Watch Kentucky Wildcats Fans Go From Being Ecstatic To Dead Silent In A Matter Of Seconds (VIDEO)
Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox & Bam Adebayo Were Extremely Emotional After Loss To Tar Heels (VIDEO)
Despite the program putting together a squad of one-and-done players every year, Kentucky freshmen De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo showed after their Elite 8 loss that college ball still means a lot to them.
Following Sunday’s heartbreaking 75-73 loss to North Carolina, reporters shoved cameras and microphones in the face of the two teammates. What they got was a wave of emotions as both players cried their hearts out.

“All these guys like my brothers, I love ‘em to death,” Adebayo said after collecting himself. “Especially Fox, he’s been my roommate since this thing started so that’s like blood to me. I just wish we would’ve won.”
The Wildcats trailed for most of the game, but rallied to tie it up at 73 after a Malik Monk triple. But the Tar Heels’ Luke Maye sent the Wildcats home after hitting a clutch jumper with just 0.3 seconds left on the clock.
